I am making it under the wire, yet again, for a Paper Craft Crew (#233) challenge. This week’s challenge is a Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge. I chose the middle, vertical column (shimmer, Shabby Chic, flowers) for my card. Here is the sketch:

This image is a digi stamp I purchased from Sherri Baldy’s Etsy shop. The purchase gave me two digi stamps of the cutest girl. I have a blog post featuring the other image here.

I had decided to try and make dread locks/ringlets on my girl after watching a YouTube tutorial on coloring with alcohol markers (sorry, I didn’t make a note of the video). I will do my best to note the markers I used, but this was one of those creative moments where I was creating and not paying attention to the details of what I used. Anyway, I’ll pull out my Spectrum Noir Hex chart and do the best I can (it will be pretty close).

Spectrum Noir alcohol markers were used on the girl and the flowers. The hair – IG10, IG2, BG6, BG3; skin – HB2, FS2, FS7, BG4, TN3, TN5; lips and cheeks – FS8; dress/headband/pants – LG2, LG3, LG5, LY`, OR1, OR2; eye – LG2, LG5; flowers – CT2, OR2, OR3; leaves – LG2, LG3, LG5; and, the blender pen was used throughout.

The base cardstock is SU! Pistachio. The images were stamped on Spectrum Noir cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The base mat is Pink and Main designer paper die cut with Fun Stamper Journey Persian Garden die, The orange mat is FSJ Creamsicle cardstock with a light green mat of designer paper from Heartfelt Creations Sweet Berry 12×12 paper pack (this explains all the flowers – I had to cover up all the strawberries on the mat – LOL), a Spellbinders die was used to create some FSJ Creamsicle swirls. Spectrum Noir clear glitter pen was applied to the hair and skirt to add the SHIMMER. FSJ Journey Glaze was applied to the flowers, skirt waist, skirt trim, and eye. Diamond rhinestones were added to the flower centers, and a triple bow from SU! lace Pistachio ribbon accented the card. Last but not least, everything is popped, popped, popped up. A lot of dimension is going on here.

It is a very busy card, but I like busy and it really yells Shabby Chic.

I really love the way this card turned out. It is one of my favorites.

Yesterday I had a Spectrum Noir Alcohol Marker coloring class, which focused on shading clothing. I had recently ordered from Etsy a Sherri Baldy digi stamp (there were two images to my surprise and delight). I thought this would be a great image to practice clothing coloring. A color palette of blues and pinks was chosen. When she was finished, I knew I had to submit another card to the Fusion Card Challenge – Pretty in Pink Card Challenge.

She was so much fun to color. Here are the markers we used: Hair – base from roots to midway of hair GB11 then GB4 to the ends. TN3, GB 10, TN5, EB4, EB5 (dots throughout hair); skin – EB1, FS7, FS9 and FS8 for cheeks and lips; dress and headband- TB1, TB4, TB5; Pants – LY1, CT4; Flowers PP1 and PP3 and Blender throughout project.

The flowers are from the Heartfelt Creations – Botanical Rose. The base of the card is FSJ Whip Cream with FSJ Watermelon Fusion and FSJ Bubble Gum cardstocks as mats. The oval was cut from Heartfelt Creations Strawberry Fields 12 x 12 paper pack. The pearl accents are FSJ pearls and they were colored with Spectrum Noir PP2 marker to make them pink. A layer of Journey Glaze was added to all the flowers to make them shine and pop. And, finally the bow is SU! silk ribbon made into a double bow.
